Another Hip Hop tragedy…
The Philadelphia (and New Jersey) Community, the Hip Hop Community and the World View Community lost a Veteran Soldier in Philadelphia’s own Viro the Virus. He was one of the first artists I reached out to to work with me on this historical project, now even more important with our loss of this unique, talented emcee.
Strangely enough, I was just talking with fellow World View emcee and Philadelphia native MarQ Spekt about Viro — we were both wondering where he’d gone. And then a mere few days later, long-time Viro affiliates the Snowgoons confirmed his death.
It is a sad day.
Below is the World View theme, featuring Viro and Sha Stimuli. Available now — for a limited time — as a free download. Or use bandcamp, name your own price, and donate all proceeds to Aim to Live, a charity educating and empowering at-risk youth in our neighborhoods.
